HOW TO STRATEGICALLY USE HR IN YOUR BUSINESS

 

Are your HR initiatives increasing profit? Are you utilizing the person tasked with HR as an active business partner? Often HR is thought of as ensuring your organization is compliant and vetting employee concerns. However, HR can have a much wider impact when it comes to maximizing the largest line item on your budget – your employees. Thinking of HR as a part of your overall business strategy and deploying it correctly can increase productivity while saving on costs.

In this workshop we’ll explore:

  • The true cost of staffing your business (average cost of recruiting an employee, training, retention, termination, etc. as well as a benefits for a typical hire).
  • How to select the HR areas and initiatives that will increase effectiveness of your organization and decrease costs.
  • Creating a successful strategy that focuses on affecting change in the identified areas that bring the greatest return on investment.
  • Setting expectations, measuring and evaluating results.
We hope you can join us!

ADDING VALUE THROUGH INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

 

Many successful businesses, large and small, are built on intangible assets or intellectual property (IP). Whether it’s a trade mark, patent, design, copyright or trade secret, each can add value to a business’s physical asset. It is important to understand your IP, the different types of IP rights, where they fit in your business, how to protect them and the ways in which you can use IP to its full potential through licensing. During this seminar we will discuss:
